Good Hotel

The hotel entrance is too small, not like a 5 star hotel. The room and bed are great, but the pillow is too low and not fit for a good sleep. The staff is very friendly and professional. Overall, a good hotel to stay.

Check in desk and bell hop very courteous and helpful. Staff was very friendly. You'll receive morning paper..complimentary fruits,coffee, tea and bottled water at night. Bathrooms are equiped with hairdryer, toothbrush,shampoo, comb and hair tie. Room also provides you with slippers and umbrella for your use. I love the safe in the room to put valuables and passport,gives me peace of mind expecially traveling outside US...Pricey but for safety, service and convenience I liked it. My sister stayed down the street at HD Hotel for half the price, no closet space or safe in the room but seems like it was alright. I enjoyed my room quiet and great staff.....Glad I stayed...

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

short walk for shopping at night walking down An Ho rd back side of hotel to Lin Jiang street.. just few blocks walking...walk down lin jiang street till you hit red light you'll see many restuarants and boutiques..also reflexology and massage...on the left side..after a long flight a foot and shoulder massage was well needed. So for NT$799 equals approximately $26.00 US for 1hour.. no tips given. Found out only tips given at hotels example bell hops etc...all other services in Taiwan do not really require tip..
